First time decided to write a review on Amazon because I am very happy and want to share my success of this purchase. I have used Brown epilators since they were invented and my last, Silk Epil, has burned down after 3 years. I have always used it for everywhere on my body, especially legs and Brazilian area and feel no pain for years now. I don’t know about you but I never use any fancy attachments – they are pure marketing I think. I just need the tweezers and learned to manoeuvre them well.
This time therefore I was looking for a basic efficiency and a bargain. For this price Philips Satinelle Corded Epilator HP6422/00 is a star product – very efficient and accurate. I will probably miss the inbuilt light but when the machine is so quick and accurate (with my experience) there is no need to peer at the area for hours so as long as you are in a well lit room with some privacy and an electric socket its easy-peasy. It is a little noisy I have noticed so you might not like that but again other machines make noise too that the house will hear just as well and its only for a short time (30 min for both legs and bikini line) that you need to put up with it. My Silk Epil was not so efficient and it took me hours and it did rattle too. Would like to add here about using epilators in water, not a good idea in my opinion as it is unhygienic. In warm water your skin becomes soft and vulnerable so it is much easier to catch skin in the tweezers and inevitably pulling your tough hair will result in some blood drawn from the roots increasing a chance of infection. I always use good talcum powder and dry operation, and then don’t shower for a day or at least a few hours. In the time between epilations keep your skin well moisturized and at shower time scrub/exfoliate with a bast wisp then you will not have ingrown hairs. I consider myself an expert and I recommend this epilator.

Bought this because I was tired of having to shave every day. Hair came off easily and rather painlessly from my legs. For armpits I reccomend using the slower setting as at first the faster one made my armpit sore. Haven't had the courage yet to do my bikini line...
Love the bag and the massager, nice added extras

Overall, great purchase. Only con is the initial pain but you expect that with an epilator

So maybe I'm no expert on how good this is in comparison to other epilators but I think this is wonderful!
I picked one up for £10 in boots clearance section. I'd been spending weeks trying to pick a first time buy that wasn't very expensive but also was good quality, and hopefully not incredibly painful to deal with.

I had no idea what to expect pain wise and I'd been all over amazon looking at reviews, the mixed reviews of the pain with a lot of them forced me to just get courage and buy a decently over all rated one.
I'd seen this online at a higher price so I jumped on the chance to get one for a tenner and I don't regret it!

I tried this on my arm hair first because I was a bit scared to do my legs. It took me ten minutes of staring at it before I finally used it.
It's nippy! Very nippy depending on what area you're using it on but you get used to the pain very fast.

It's so quick in comparison to shaving and not as expensive as waxing, whether it's professional or home done. I can brave the nippyness when I'm saving a LOT of time and money.

It misses a few hairs sometimes so you have to go back over some areas but that doesn't bother me as that happens to me no matter what hair removal option I pick. Also I might have had to go over some areas again because my hairs are short as it is right now.

My arm is so soft and smooth! Can't wait to use it all over. I have thick dark coarse hair, with extremely pale and sensitive skin so I can really see the effects right away.

I must note that you should use this maybe a few hours before going out because my skin went all red and spotty looking, basically from all that tweezing.

I'm so happy I can give up shaving as my skin always got very irritated by it and it takes up so much time!

Highly recommend this for a first time buyer unsure of what to get and you're on a budget.

Bought this for my daughter and she seems to like it! It's light compact and easy to use. She found it a little uncomfortable at first, but is finding it better with practice

despite other reviewers saying this product is ineffective & too painful, and jumpy then an epilator is not for you. If you have a medium/high pain threshold then this wont bother you at all. Ive used epilators for years and this is absolutely fine. You can't expect something to pull the hairs out of your body parts and it not hurt! so please be realistic when buying something like this. it has two speeds so people who are using it on smaller areas can use it effectively.

I do recommend it as an experienced owner of epilators. so remember if your a wimp don't buy it.

This is mynfirst professional epilater and it does hurt when I use it but it does the job and gets rid of the hairs, I dont know if its just me or if it is what the epilaters do but the hairs dont grow back in all at once or as quick like they do when shaving also the hairs seem thinner and not as dark or wiry.
im pleased I bought this and I doubt I will ever shave again.

much cheaper than my first epilator, a bit noisier but just as good.

tip for anyone trying this for the first time - if you cant' wax yourself because its too painful then using an epilator for the first time isn't quite as bad, but its still bad. So go and get waxed. Then use the epilator every week. No pain. Using it every week keeps you beautifully de-fuzzed and means so little is there to be pulled it really doesn't hurt. If you are extra sensitive, work down your legs first, pulling with the grain, not against it until you have pulled out everything you can. Then go the other way. this also minimizes 'red bump syndrome'!

I have never owned an epilator before but decided to "treat" myself to one! I spent a lot of time reading reviews on products and liked this one, it was half the price of the same one in a well known high street pharmacy so I thought I'd give it a go! I used to wet shave my legs and this resulted in the hair growing back really stubbly and this caused rashes. Yes it is painful the first few times of usage but I have noticed that I am building up a tolerance to this pain, the hair grows back and is very soft (so no more rashes!), I try not to let the hairs grow too long before re-shaving so it doesn't hurt as much. Yes it does leave my skin red looking after using but this soon goes away within a few hours. I have recommended this product to a close friend of mine to try as I am very impressed with it and so glad I decided to "treat" myself!

I made a big mistake here I think. I read the reviews and saw that someone had used it for facial hair so thought I would buy it as my old epilator was getting blunt. When it arrived I read that it is not suitable for facial hair removal but thought I would try anyway, having read the positive review. I had been researching epilators for ages! However, it has little or no effect on by lip and chin and I am still tweezering away every day. Very disappointed as it was fairly expensive and I don't know what to do now.

I can't believe how great this is compared to waxing, wish I'd bought it years ago. No more disgusting sticky strips covered in hairs or waiting until the hairs are quite long, I find it can pluck them at only 1 or 2mm length & its so convenient. I have it plugged in next to my bed so I can run it over my legs every few days, because it doesn't hurt as much if it only picks out a few at a time & I always have smooth legs with no strays.
